This recipe was born after I tried a pasta dish with orange. Thinking of creating a risotto dish with orange then adding lemon came to mind. Citrus goes very well with seafood so pairing them with calamari came out a good combination and the subtle taste of zucchini gave a healthier touch. This risotto reminds me of summer even if orange is not a summer fruit. If you are using oranges, please be sure that they are not sour. This is a refreshing dish especially with the addition of mint.
I have other two recipes using fresh orange juice in cooking rice and barley. They are Orzotto (Barley) With Agretti, Shrimp & Oranges and Orange Rice With Cinnamon and Chocolate.
